2016-17 Sporting Achievements

16th March

Congratulations to our Year 5/6 Football team who were runners up at the Calderdale Football Competition. The boys put in a fantastic performance, keeping a clean sheet throughout their group stages and semi final matches.  In the final match against Carr Green, the boys gave it their all and at full time the score remained 0-0.  The match went into extra time and  was now to be decided by  a golden goal.

 

With 30 seconds to go, Carr Green where awarded a free kick, which was smashed into the bottom right hand corner of our goal. An extremely unlucky way to finish the game! Finishing in second place didn't dampen the boys spirits, as second place was still good enough to see them through to the West Yorkshire Summer Games in July.  Exciting times are ahead! 

1st March

A huge well done to our Year 5/6 gymnastics team who competed in their first ever competition. An exciting afternoon was had by all at Diamonds Gymnastics Club and the girls gave it their all as they performed a variety of amazing moves and routines in front of the official judges.  

 

After practising for weeks at the schools gym club with Gemma, the girls gave 100% effort and where a credit to the school through out the competition. A special mention goes to Amy, who competed for the school for the first time!

15th October:

Congratulations to Bowling Green's Tag Rugby A team, who finished top of their pool, at the Area One Tag Rugby festival. The team put in a brilliant performance across all six of their games, with their game against Triangle being the game of the tournament. As the clock counted down, the children made some fantastic defensive tackles to ensure that they held on to their nail-biting lead of 2 trys to 1.

Winning all six of their games, the team have made a great start to defending our Calderdale Tag Rugby Champions title. A special mention goes to Beth and Frankie who were our players of the tournament. We now have our fingers crossed for our B Team who play at the Area Two festival on Tuesday.  

Our first Silver School Games award, after an outstanding year of sporting participation and amazing achievements. We are looking forward to building up on our success and are now going for Gold!
